Dear RFW Family

Our Computer Brain - Hal was worse off than I thought. It got sent out today and will soon go under the knife. The hard-drive crash wiped out many needed programs and years of data. This whole ordeal has caused a major setback. I thank all of you for your kind words and I will keep you updated on our future. I miss our daily interaction more than I can explain (sniff, sniff).

In the meantime, enjoy the Past Transmissions, check out RFW on KYOU and have a Happy Halloween !

Transmission 20508

The ever-challenging ability to Hang On To A Dream while crying Tears Of Rage in our collective sleep has made it very hard for many of us to focus on getting Close To Paradise. The titles of a few of today's songs strike a deep nerve, but provide a chance for us to relieve our tension with the power of music. Please take a time-out from the madness and enjoy Buffalo Daughter, Simian Mobile Disco, The Cure, Todd Rundgren, Slade, Neil Young, Rocky Fuller, Patrick Watson, Gene Clark, Medeski/Martin & Wood and The Nice.
